  1. 1) Think seriously about installing a speed button on your audio. I always listen to Youtubes at the 25% or 50% faster rate. It’s a real luxury to take the time to listen to something this long.

    2) I will have to say that at present I am pretty worried about hiring anyone with a visa of any kind. I have a number of H1B people and am scared to death that we might not do everything just right and they might get kicked out. These are good docs with families. I would feel awful if anything happened because we didn’t get the paperwork just right so we have gone back with our immigration lawyers and double checked and even redone some steps to be safe.
